Brussels sprouts already starting to show up at the market.
These were nice!
Side story: There is a billboard outside of this particular Trader Joe's with these exact pictures on it but no words and for many months now I've been meaning to ask an employee what the pictures meant. Then while we were in the frozen aisle today, Sister S spotted this sign inside the store that finally solved the puzzle. Of course we had been reading too much into this the whole time. We thought it was some clever inside joke. Maybe it is.
Dinner tonight was inspired by this healthy basil plant in my sister's yard and some ingredients requested by my sisters.
Sauteing some Cremini mushrooms, asparagus and chopped garlic...
...to add to this TJ's jarred marina sauce. Already added to the sauce but not photographed were some sauteed spicy Italian sausages.
Served over some tri-colored radiatore pasta! The basil was the star of the show. We also made some garlic bread with some mini french baguettes but I forgot to take a photo. It was delicious! You will have to take my word for it.
